The Cambodian Federation of Employers and Business Associations (CAMFEBA), established on 13 June 2000, is an autonomous and independent Federation of Employers and Business Associations recognized and registered with the Ministry of Social Affairs, Labor, Vocational Training and Youth Rehabilitations of Cambodia. Having been established due to the increasing need for the private sector to stand together with a unified voice, CAMFEBA has become the single federation representing, promoting and safeguarding the rights and interests of employers in Cambodia. CAMFEBA provides a forum for consultation and discussion among members on matters of common interest, and seeks for the adoption of sound principles and practices of human resource and industrial relations through information, legal advice, research, training and other activities.
As of October 31, 2014, CAMFEBA is collectively representing over 2,000 employers, both unionized and non-unionized, comprising of 11 Business Associations as Association members, 227 individual companies as ordinary members and 26 non-profit organizations as Associate members.
CAMFEBA is recognized nationally, regionally and internationally as the sole employers’ representative in Cambodia. It works closely with the ILO and is the sole employers’ representative from Cambodia to the International Labor Conference held in Geneva, every year. CAMFEBA is also a member of the International Organization of Employers (IOE), the ASEAN Confederation of Employers (ACE) and the Confederation of Asia-Pacific Employers (CAPE).
